HaloCam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam: Installation & Review

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam
HaloCam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam Review Summary
Review Summary
The Halocam M1 is a two camera (front / rear) video recording system designed for motorcycle use. Two waterproof cameras are mounted on the motorcycle and connected to a central DVR unit designed to automatically start recording once the ignition is switched on. Video clips are recorded continuously in adjustable lengths and overwrite the oldest clips once the card capacity is reached. The overall video quality is decent but sharpness and contrast are very good making for useful footage to review in the event of an crash.
Small and lightweight DVR module
Video quality good for intended purpose
Well packaged
Price is reasonable for quality of video footage
Camera cables are a little bulky
DVR module feels “cheap” and doesn’t inspire confidence in long term durability
Instructions are very basic, some experimentation required to sort out settings
Included brackets needed a little “adjustment”
Average, With Drawbacks

Dashcams are becoming more and more popular in cars and trucks in recent years and not without good reason. With costs of vehicle repairs and associated injuries always on the rise, having a video of an incident might provide crucial evidence in determining fault in the event of a crash.

Finding dashcams for a car or truck is rather easy with a lot of choices available at various price points. Motorcycle camera systems, however, are much fewer in number. This is likely due to two factors:

  1. Motorcycles require more durable systems that can cope with the elements as at least some parts, the cameras, for instance, will be exposed to the great outdoors.
  2. Motorcycles are greatly outnumbered by cars and trucks (in the United States anyway) making the potential market for motorcycle specific devices much smaller.

These factors have lead to very few systems available that will work for the motorcyclist. There are several inexpensive systems on eBay and Amazon that hover around the $100.00 (USD) mark and then there are systems such as the Innovv K1 that run over $250.00 which we reviewed back in 2015. (The new Innovv K3 system currently available runs over $330.00!)

While I haven’t handled the very inexpensive systems the price makes me wonder about their quality to the point where I wouldn’t be willing to risk time and money on them. Recently, a thread on the popular adventure riding website Adventure Rider popped up with someone mentioning a new system he just purchased called the HaloCam M1. This system cost under $200.00 and his opinion was that the system performed well considering the price.

Of course, I had to find out for myself what this system was all about. Let’s all have a look.

The HaloCam M1

After learning about the HaloCam M1 I reached out to our editor at wBW and asked if he would be interested in a review. He was very interested and gave me the green light to order the system. I mention this because less than two weeks after I placed my order he contacted me letting me know that the HaloCam rep reached out to him to see if we wanted to review the system.

Obviously, we told them that we already had begun the process but thanks for the offer. Frankly, in a case where we have a lesser-known vendor, I prefer the maker not to be aware the unit is being purchased for review so that I can be assured I’m getting the same experience as any other consumer.

Presentation is Everything

Once I received my box from Amazon containing the HaloCam system and opened it, I was impressed. Not by the camera system but just by the box itself. Instead of the plain white box I expected, the system came in a nice looking brown box with some nice printing and design on it.

Opening the box presented me with a white foam interior cut to fit the major parts of the system. Everything had its place and was well packed in a thoughtful design. Their marketing team certainly wanted to make a nice impression and it worked. Looks aren’t everything and despite the adage “presentation is everything” – results are much more important than a pretty box. Before we get to the results though, let’s see what’s in that box.

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam packaging

What’s in the Box

The contents of the packaging provide pretty much everything required to completely install the system (few more zip ties would have been nice). However, zip ties notwithstanding, the system is comprehensive. Here’s the rundown:

  • The DVR Module
  • (2) Cameras
  • A remote switch
  • A GPS antennae
  • Camera mounting brackets (with screws)
  • The power supply module
  • (3) Extension cables
  • A USB power supply adapter
  • A magnetic mount for the DVR module
  • 3M dual lock fastener pad
  • A rubber cover for the DVR module
  • A printed quick start guide

The DVR module is a compact unit measuring 3.5x 2 x.3 inches (89x 51 x 8mm) and, despite the advertising photos, has a blue casing instead of black. The unit is also very lightweight though it’s hard to quantify since the connection cable “pigtails” is permanently attached. Suffice to say it’s not the most sturdy feeling device.

On the DVR unit is a 2.75 inch (70mm) screen for viewing live and recorded video as well as menus for device setup. The top edge has a single button to power on the DVR module. On the long lower edge are four buttons for navigating the menus as well as a MicroSD card slot.

The slot is actually labeled TF which refers to the TF Card standard but the term is now considered interchangeable so Micro SD cards will work fine. As always I would recommend a card from a major manufacturer with a good reputation for best results and durability.

On the subject of durability, it’s evident via a cursory examination that the device is not waterproof or even resistant. A “waterproof” rubber sleeve is included with the device but since one side is almost entirely open it is best to assume it will help reduce shock and vibration and a little bit of water resistance. As such it is best to find a reasonably well-protected location for installation of the DVR module.

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam wire connectors

Cameras, power, and control switch connections use keyed connectors so they can only be installed the “correct” way. The camera and switch connections are (fortunately) all cross compatible so if one should accidentally run the “front” connection cable to the “rear” camera, it will still work just fine. I’ll demonstrate this in the installation section in a minute.

The camera units are a little larger and heavier than I expected but they have large coated glass elements which are a good sign for creating contrasty video footage. Also, the weight suggests a pretty solid metal housing which is warranted considering the durability required for long life being attached to a motorcycle.

The advertising for the HaloCam M1 claims that these are Sony lenses and Sony sensors. I can give the benefit of the doubt on the sensor side of things as I can’t take them apart but the lenses, I have doubts. The omission of “Sony Lens” and focal length printed on the front is very unusual for a product from Sony and most any major camera/lens manufacturer.

Now let’s see how all the pieces come together and install on my Ninja 1000.



Installation is not complicated but it can take some time. In my case, I wanted to avoid cutting or drilling any plastics on my bike. At the same time, I wanted to have a relatively “clean” installation so I spent almost as much time planning as I did the actual installation.

Before We Begin

Something important I want to point out is that the Green connector on the DVR is for the front camera and the Black one is for the rear. I want to save others the trouble of trying to figure this out as it is NOT called out in the meager instructions. I found this after some trial and error. I didn’t know at the time but there is an image (shown below) on the Amazon product page that calls all the parts out.

Where to Start

Since every bike is different I’m not going to go into too much installation detail here (thank goodness, right?) and instead we’ll just take a high-level view. The main things to consider are locations for cameras, the DVR, GPS module, and lock button. Also, power needs to be considered.

Powering Up

I’ll start with the last point first. The power supply module should be connected to a switched power source such as running lights or other “ignition on” source. I already have an Eastern Beaver fuse panel installed under the seat of my bike so I have switched power already available.

I mention all this because the advert on Amazon states “Constant Power Supply & Connect then forget”. This isn’t very clear but it could be taken to mean just connect to a constant power supply like the battery. Do not do this as the system will remain on all the time until it runs the battery down.

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam installation process

The HaloCam M1 comes with a USB power connector which allows one to power up the system away from the bike. This was very handy for doing the initial set up inside at the table using just a USB power bank.

There was an initial concern on my part about how the system would be able to gracefully stop recording once the ignition is turned off. This seemed to me like it could cause corrupt files but it turns out there is an internal rechargeable battery that can provide the unit with power to run for several minutes (or more?) after the power has been turned off so files are saved properly once the bike is turned off and the unit shuts down a few seconds later.

Spot for the DVR

After getting the power sorted, the next step should be to find a suitable location for the DVR unit. Since it is not waterproof I would recommend a location that is well protected such as under a seat or other storage compartment. In my case, I placed the unit under my passenger seat.

Placing the Cameras

Next, place the cameras. I wanted to put the cameras in unobtrusive locations that also offered a decent view. The rear was easy enough on my bike as I just attached it under the top case rack. This offered a good view of the rear which, while it does cut off some of the tops of the view, provides more than enough view to do the job as a “dashcam”.

The front was a little more difficult as I couldn’t find a place I felt good about. Right under the fairing nose posed the possibility of the camera contacting the front fender over a big bump and there weren’t other places I liked. Eventually, I attached it to the side of the front fender. This location does have a portion of the fender blocking some of the right side views but still offers enough view to do the job of “dashcam”.

I didn’t want to drill holes in the plastics to attach the brackets for the cameras with the included screws so I used Scotch Extreme Mounting tape to attach the brackets to the bike. This tape has worked very well for me on other projects and has held the cameras in place for weeks now in the summer heat with no issues. *Your “mileage” may vary so if that stuff doesn’t work for you please don’t come after me :).

Motorcycle subframe

GPS Antenna

With the cameras and DVR in place, the last piece of the puzzle was to find a good spot for the GPS antenna. Since I had removed some of the rear plastics around the subframe during the wire routing planning, I found a good spot on the left side of the subframe which will be covered by the plastics once they are re-installed.

The thin plastic shouldn’t cause an issue with the GPS reception and since the unit was able to locate satellites from inside our house during initial testing I felt pretty good about this.

Potential “Gotchas”

While I was planning my wire routing I found there were several routing options that were not compatible due to the relatively large size of the waterproof connectors for the extension cables.

Some areas that might have been large enough to allow the cable to pass through discreetly were much too small to get these larger connectors to pass through. In some cases, removal of more parts from the bike could have made this work but the return on time investment didn’t seem worth it to me.

The other thing to be aware of is that the small metal brackets for the cameras are not that robust and in the kit I received, the loop portion of the bracket that encircles the cameras were too large to securely keep the cameras properly positioned.

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam brackets

That isn’t to say the cameras would fall out but they were too loose to maintain their correct rotational position allowing them to twist in the mount. This was a pretty easy fix using a very small strip of tape on the interior of the metal band. Once in place, the bracket could be tightened down enough to hold the camera firmly in position.

One last thing to keep in mind is that the extension cables are quite long and a bit thick. Since they contain several conductors (wires) they are not easily cut and spliced. As such I ended up with a lot of excess wire to bundle up and “store” under the seat. I had sufficient space to tuck this wire bundle on my Ninja 1000 but not every bike will have space like this so be sure to include room for this in your installation if you want to have a “neat” final installation.


In Use

Once installed and underway, the system is automatic. Recording starts a few seconds after the ignition is turned on and shuts down a few seconds after being turned off. It really couldn’t be easier.

Setting up the options is fairly straightforward. Resolution can be set for 720p or 1080p and if using the 1080p setting, a high-speed card is recommended as two 7mbps video streams are being captured at the same time.

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam control screen

Settings can be adjusted through the phone app (Android or iPhone) over Wi-Fi. The DVR unit acts as the access point so one will need to connect their device to the Wi-Fi specs called out in the manual. The Wi-Fi settings can be adjusted if desired.

Control Button

The included control button allows one to capture a 15 second “Wonderful Video” and a photo by pressing the button briefly. Holding it down for a long press (more than one second?) will lock the video preventing it from being overwritten. Depending on the size of the SD card, this might be unnecessary but it can be done nonetheless.

Halocam M1 Motorcycle Dashcam control button

Just to be clear, “Wonderful Videos” are simply video clips that start from 5 seconds before you press the button and then run for a total of fifteen seconds from that point. This doesn’t appear to interfere with regular recording but rather it just “clips” this segment and saves a copy to the Wonderful Video folder on the card. These videos come from only the front camera and are really for the convenience of finding that brief moment of desired footage later.

Accessing Your Video Clips

One of the settings is the clip length with the shortest being one minute and the longest, five. I chose the five-minute clip length simply as it makes fewer files. Keep in mind this is just the length of each clip that is recorded. They are continually recorded and “stack” upon the card until it is full, then the oldest files are overwritten as a new video is captured.

The menu system on the DVR module is pretty easy to sort out and it can be used to view the live video as well as recorded clips and still photos. The phone app includes the same access to settings and offers a more robust interface for viewing photos and videos.

There is also the option of signing into the HaloCam sharing service where one can upload their videos. The sharing function has an easy to use editor allowing one to trim the video, remove the audio, and even choose some music from some included options. The videos are shared with their server and can also be sent to Facebook, Twitter, Wechat, and Moments. Strangely there is no YouTube option.

Where Was I?

The HaloCam M1 comes with a GPS antenna but how exactly to access the GPS data was a bit of a mystery. As I stated earlier in the review, the included instructions are rather brief. Fortunately, the support from the vendor was very quick to respond.

While they were quick to respond, the actual instructions were a bit vague and consisted of a series of screenshots from the phone app. After following along I understood that one has to connect their phone to the DVR unit via the DVR Wi-Fi. Then, the data gets synchronized to the phone.

After the synchronization, one has to switch back the phone back to their cellular or Wi-Fi internet connection and then upload the data to the HaloCam server. After this step one can view the GPS data.

Historical GPS data can be viewed by date on the phone app but be sure you are not connected to the DVR unit or it will not show. It’s a bit counterintuitive but I was able to view the routes I took on the days when the system was running. Furthermore, there is a small “speed” icon that allows one to see various mph data along the route. The only thing I would like to see is a way to download the GPS data to a computer.

Video Quality

Video quality from the system is a mixed bag that leans more toward utility than “pretty”. For the mission of this camera system, I think that is just fine. The footage from both front and rear cameras is certainly sharp and contrasty making it easy to decipher details like license plate characters and street signs.

[Insert Video Sample Here]

Colors are a bit flat and the wide angle optics induce the expected distortion typical of the breed. The effects of rolling shutter can be seen as well indicating the slow readout speed of the CMOS sensors used in these cameras.

All that may sound harsh, and it would be if I was expecting GoPro levels of image quality. Instead, I am happy to give up some aspects of the quality of the footage in order to get those important details that could be necessary for the event of a crash. Law enforcement (if it comes to it) isn’t going to be concerned about the precision color of the footage.

About Law Enforcement

It’s important to note that the legal use of dashcam’s and similar devices for judging fault in the event of a crash will likely vary from state to state (or country to country). I highly recommend one research the proper use regulation of these devices for their local area before relying on them as legal evidence.


In the end, the HaloCam performs adequately. The video footage is good enough to provide clear enough details for recording events happening in front and behind the motorcycle. While the video isn’t going to win any awards for color and exposure, it looks pretty good.

Like the video footage, the interface on the DVR as well as that in the phone application does the job but isn’t particularly intuitive. The email support is quick enough but trial and error may likely be part of the recipe for learning the ropes of using the HaloCam M1.

Motorcycle subframe

As far as the build quality and durability of the DVR unit, it has held up well so far but the unit is so lightweight it doesn’t instill confidence that it will take a lot of punishment. Obviously, the device should be placed in a “safe place” on the bike but motorcycles make a lot of vibration and are subject to varying weather conditions. Time will tell how long it will hold up.

  1. One huge caution when buying any dash cam is the internal battery. These systems typically come with ~200-500mah LiPO batteries soldered internally to the board. In my experience these fail after about a year to 18 months in most dashcams. I have experienced 2 failures in this time, in 2 different brands. What does this mean? If the battery fails once the ignition is turned off the camera cannot save the video and you loose the footage. How do I know, I had an accident (hit and run) and there was no recoverable footage from the event. For ~ $60 you can buy hero clones at 4k resolution with loop functionality and replaceable batteries (buy 2 for less than the price of one of these and get better resolution). Wire the switchable power and you are good to go. I was successful in soldering a new battery in one of my dashcams but the other did not fare as well. Your results may vary but I will not buy any dashcam without a replaceable battery.

    1. The instructions show that the device uses a CR2032 watch battery. The battery is user replaceable.

    1. Agreed. I would like to have seen the unit be more water resistant/ waterproof. They went to the trouble of making the various connectors waterproof :). Where mine is place under my seat it has held up OK even in the rain. Still one could have more mounting options if the DVR device could get wet without issue.

    2. The latest DVR I got from Halocam has a rubber cover that makes the DVR fairly waterproof. It won’t survive being dipped in a bucket, but has done well for almost a year now under the seat of my bike…and that area does get wet.

  2. Another big caution is warranty, and where you have to send it back to, should an issue arise. I found out the hard way with my Innov system, that it had to be sent back to mainland China, the cost of shipping exceeded the value of the unit. I’m real gun shy after that fiasco. Please post long term results of this unit.

  3. Has anyone had any experience with improving audio quality? At slow speeds it’s fine, but on accelerating it passes a threshold where white noise is amplified massively – but it does not appear to correlate with increased noise directly. I was on the track and it’s hard to hear the revs, even though it’s under-seat mounted and thus next to the pipe.

    I did try removing the rubber jacket but that made no difference.

    1. Unfortunately this is going to be the nature of the beast. The microphone is in the button / control piece, not on the DVR unit itself as far as I know/recall (maybe I’ve forgotten).
      Still, the audio is going to be poor on most any tiny mic like that without significant wind protection.

  4. I’ve been using this dashcam since it came out. I was pleased enough with what I experienced that I was the one who recommended to the manufacturer to get a review on webBikeWorld.

    Other than the first DVR having some image issues, the replacement has been better than I could ever expect.

    ONE CAUTION – I wish I could bold face and underline this caution. It’s something extremely important and not mentioned in the review. You need the fastest SD card you can find. Amazon had bundled the HaloCam DVR with a Samsung EVO memory card. But the Samsung EVO memory card was not fast enough to handle the data demands…one of the reasons for the corrupt video issue I first experienced.

    In regards to Customer Service and sending the unit back, I can say their Customer Service is excellent and quick at replying. I did send the first unit back, but at their expense. Since I was leaving on a trip and wanted the mental security of having a dash camera, they sent the replacement without waiting for the original unit to get back to them.

    The quality to me, seems excellent. Image quality is great. Detail is sharp. I’ve had people look at the videos and say they looked good enough to be action camera quality. I won’t go that far, but if you’re just posting a casual video on YouTube, I think the quality is good enough for that. I recently got the Sena 10C Pro and compared the video from both devices. The Sena 10C Pro at 1440 dpi was better than the HaloCam M1 at 1080i…but not by that much.

    The initial unit did not come with the rubberized sleeve. I installed mine under the seat…a location that does get wet on my bike, especially when washing the bike. I simply put that unit in a plastic bag. The second unit and the one I’m still using after five months, has the rubberized cover. I don’t bother with anything additional on it. Why? Because the cover is good enough to keep water out. If you look at the DVR itself, all the connections are water tight and away from the body of the DVR. The only openings on the DVR are where the SD card goes in and maybe on the menu buttons themselves. With that cover on, you could drop it in a bucket of water and still be okay with it.

    One thing I really appreciate, is the ability to view the camera footage when using the wi-fi and the app. When you’re trying to align the placement of the cameras, you can see in real time where they are pointing. The tape they use for the camera base is strong enough that once set, it isn’t coming loose again. So you want to make the first placement right. 🙂

    I don’t have any reservations recommending this HaloCam M1 dashcam. The customer service was great when I needed it. The unit itself works great and is holding up to daily commuting use and some very long road trips. It’s worked great in temps near 100F and in low temps as well. It’s working fine in rain, even though not technically waterproof.

  5. 4-days and no response from support. I bot Samsung 256gb sd (TF) cards and they are not recognized by dvr. I cannot format. I cannot change to 1080 from 720 footage.I have the app on the iPhone and it has no response/control of selection. It does not record. Glad you mentioned Green is for the front camera. I bot 2 of these and could not get an answer from support. I installed first on incorrectly and now need a redo. Amazing they did not mention this in their instructions. They still have not called to help with TF card not being recognized. They have no contact phone number only :

    1. Hi, Last year I bought a HaloCam M1 unit and after some issues with the setup finally started working good but last month had an accident and when I tried to check the video I realize that it got frozen after 20 seconds even the sound was recorded beyond those 20 seconds up to the end of the “video” when the accident occurred.
      Then I started checking some other videos and it was the same. That was frustrating because it is not cheap unit and I needed that video as a proof of the accident I was involved in. It appears that this malfunction has happen to other people.
      Another thing is that even the accident was on July 2nd around 4 pm the video shows July 4, 4:04 am but the time settings on the unit is the right one.
      I got the Samsung Evo SD card.

      Do you know what is causing this problem?

      1. Edward, sorry about the accident. I hope all works out for you.

        Regarding the SD card, I bought a 64 GB Sandisk Extreme Pro card. 64 GBs gets me through a couple days of recording. Once I dumped the Samsung EVO card, everything worked fine. Video and sound both.

        Here’s a link to one similar to what I bought.

        As I was researching the failures I was initially having, I came across someone saying that the Samsung EVO cards specifically say they are not suitable for video recording. That made sense with the experiences I was having…which were much like yours.

        As for the time stamp, you set that in the menu system on the unit itself.
        For my purposes,

      1. Thanks Chris for your help. I’ll try the sd card you recommended and will install the system on my new bike.

  6. It would’ve helped if you had read my comments above.

    “ONE CAUTION – I wish I could bold face and underline this caution. It’s something extremely important and not mentioned in the review. You need the fastest SD card you can find. Amazon had bundled the HaloCam DVR with a Samsung EVO memory card. But the Samsung EVO memory card was not fast enough to handle the data demands…one of the reasons for the corrupt video issue I first experienced.”

    You bought a memory card that cannot sustain the write speed required.

  7. Sounds like a solid camera. I’m interested in buying one, but can’t find any online – Amazon says out of stock, their website doesn’t have anywhere to buy it. Does anyone know if they’re still for sale?

  8. Just installed on my bike. Agree with everything said in the article However, there is one major CON. The SD card cannot be shared across devices. To work the card must be formatted in the HaloCam. My Mac will not read it. If formatted on the Mac the HaloCam will not read the Micro SD card. This unit is mounted in the motorcycle, attaching it to a computer is unrealistic.

    1. Harry, I have to admit I had not tried it in a Mac (I don’t have one) but I had no trouble plugging the card right into my card readers on both my desktop and laptop Windows machines. I’m surprised that a Mac would have trouble as they are usually pretty good at reading from most format styles that PC’s can read. I had good luck with contacting “Amos” at AIDrive ( Perhaps you can reach out using that email address?
      Tomorrow I’ll get out the card from my installed camera setup and check the filesystem used to verify it is fat32 (or maybe exfat) which should be readable by macs as well (as far as I know).

    2. I’m not trying to get into a Mac vs Windows debate or argument. Your comment about “My Mac will not read it” though is not unusual. I worked IT for a major manufacturer for ten years and had my own business on the side maintaining PCs. As much as owners love their Macs, there are things like this that happen. I wish you luck.

    3. I had to download the files I want to transfer from my Halo to my Mac to my cellphone first. Then I take the chip out of my phone, put it in the SD adapter and put it in my Mac. My cell phone is an Android, not an Apple. Personally, I think its a lot of hassle, but at least the footage is being saved. I use this system in my 2016 Dodge Caravan. I installed the cameras on my A pillars facing my blind spots on both passenger and driver sides. I installed the DVR into my head liner. Great lil system.

  9. My biggest disappointment with this unit is that the “wonderful” video button only saves the front camera (by design, but still) and I have yet to figure out how long to hold that button to save the full 5-minute loop. I’ll have to practice in the driveway.

    The issue with Macs reading the cards has to do with the flavor of ExFAT that the card is formatted with. There are two workarounds (none ideal): 1. read the card on a non-Mac system and then transfer from there, or 2. use the wifi-transfer function to pull onto your phone from the device.

    I’ve searched high and low for some kind of utility to run under MacOS that’ll still read this format, but no dice. Perhaps plugging it into a USB card reader and attaching it to a router/Roku that does network shares of USB-connected drives might do the trick. I’m still hunting.

  10. I’ve done the most ridiculous thing for transferring video while in the middle of a trip… I got a 2TB external “SSK” drive which has wifi management, and also bought a USB-A card reader which plugs into the drive. Power the drive up, connect to the drive’s wifi with my iPhone, and the management software lets me transfer from the card to the drive (I can “copy” or “move”). Later, when I want to read my video files on the Mac, I can just plug the SSK drive into the Mac and it’s a standard external harddrive. Kind of janky, but it lets me use a 64GB card for multi-day rides – just have to have the routine of “get into the motel room, and start transferring your files” before heading out for beer and food.
